Description olivier.thiebaut 2020-01-23 10:25:38 UTC
Using the commande copy/paste (cloning) format give an incomplete result.
Only part of the copied format is cloned, instead of the whole format attribute.
For example : underlined, color background, ... are not copied with the other format attributes (size, police, bold, ...)

Actual Results:
Paste only part of the format attributes

Expected Results:
Should paste the whole format attributes

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

There's a different between paragraph style and character style

see: https://help.libreoffice.org/6.4/en-US/text/shared/guide/paintbrush.html?DbPAR=SHARED#bm_id380260

Does this solve your problem?

Yes, a kind of easter egg. Bug 128344 will hopefully solve this.
